Book clubs in Blackheath

Book Club at Blackheath Village Library
Clare emailed a while back, asking if there were any reading groups in Blackheath. I knew that there was one based at the library, but couldn’t remember the details. As I went to renew a book a few days ago, sure enough on the counter was all the information that you would need –

First edition of Brideshead Revisited, from wikipediaThere’s a book club held at the library on the first Thursday of each month, between 6.30pm-7.30pm. Last month they were reading Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh.

This contradicts what is written on Greenwich council’s page about reading groups – they claim that it is held at 7pm on the occasional Monday. Lewisham’s effort mentions a reading group, but doesn’t say when it is… At least it doesn’t send you there on the wrong day!

So, if you do go along, please let me know how it is, how many people are there, and whether the first Thursday of the month is the right date!

    I run a bookclub in Greenwich – maybe a bit too far for some people but i thought i’d pass it on.

    We have between 10 – 15 members, and meet once a month.

    We meet every 2nd Thursday of the month (in January it’s the 14th) at 7pm upstairs in the Cutty Sark Pub.


  4. To clarify about the reading groups : Blackheath Village Library ( by the Post Office) is run by Lewisham Council and has its reading group on the first Thursday of the month, 6.30-7.30pm as in the picture above. Greenwich Council also have a library in Blackheath ( by the Standard), also have a reading group but it meets at a different time.
    So there are two chances to join reading groups in local libraries!
